After Surgery

Once you are in stable condition, you will be discharged.  Most patients are discharged 1/2 hour to 2 hours after surgery.  It is normal to experience sleepiness and dizziness for 12 to 24 hours after surgery.

Post Care
You will receive verbal and written post-surgical care instructions (please follow those instructions). You must have a driver to take you home. You can choose to have your escort also listen to the post-op instructions. If you experience anything unusual after your surgery or procedure, please call your physician or go to the nearest emergency room.
A nurse from our center will call you on the next business day after your surgery or procedure to check on your recovery.

Transportation
DO NOT PLAN TO DRIVE
yourself home or use public transportation after your procedure.  A friend or relative or dedicated caregiver MUST stay with you for 24 hours.
